Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been working on our family trees sence 1975. I use to take my Mom with me to the old cemeteries and she'd tell me the old family stories of the ones that were here before Indiana & Michigan were states. I've been blessed to hear those stories all my life.
I have been scolded (by another member) for posting headstones that do not have death dates on them, meaning there is the possibility of that person still being alive. I do this so those who are searching have the opportunity to contact the person and getting information from them instead of just staring at a marker. I am not giving out personal information. I only post what is engraved on the marker. We all seem to have our own way of doing things. No ones better then another.
I will make correction as soon as I can. If I don't get back to you quickly please forgive me. Carol
This site is important to Carol, so when she's not feeling her best, I've decided to help her out. Mel
